Hi. I've dived the Kai Iwi lakes as well... Pretty nice with good visibility... There is a lot of silt on the bottom floor though...

1st dive was at Pine Beach - goes down to about 15m and then it's just gradual...algae patches along the floor with some
freshwater crays and if you're lucky, a few trout... (I only saw one)

2nd dive was at Promenade Point - goes down to a cool 28m!! Quite a few crays there as well...

I think it's worth going...I'm going to try the other smaller lakes next time I go...
